Funded by the European Space Agency, the aim of the EO4OG project is to determine the current and future needs of the Oil & Gas industry in terms of Earth Observation products and services. The project will unroll in three phases over a 10 month period.
Our selected participants have received a PDF brochure (click here to download) explaining the EO4OG project goals and objectives and providing a brief overview of the survey questions. The survey itself will be carried out over the telephone, to best understand participants’ challenges and requirements.
As the survey forms are completed, we will make the results available online, via the OGEO portal.
This project is driven by the needs of the oil & gas industry with regards to offshore exploration and operations, Health and Safety, sustainable development and national and international regulations. The goal is to determine how Earth Observation products and services can best aid the industry at all phases of the OGP lifecycle. Our consortium will work in close collaboration with the oil & gas industry to identify challenges, provide an inventory and description of existing EO data solutions, analyze the gap between user requirements, available products and current uses, and define expectations in terms of improvement of EO data/services and development of new services.
Special attention will be paid to the typical phases of an OGP project: Pre-license acquisition, Exploration, Development, Exploitation/Production, and Decommissioning.
Our geographical areas of interest include:
- South Africa,
- Northern Brazil,
- Caspian Sea.
